Rava Coconut Ladoo is a mouth watering sweet,made specially in Diwali.My aunty used to make it in a lot.I remember I used to go and open her cupboard for these special ladoos.Just same to me,my son has sweet tooth and always opens cupboard and fridge to find something sweet.So,I thought I will give a try for ‘Rava coconut Ladoo’ and satisfy my son Aditya’s sweet hunger 😉
1 cup fine rava
1 cup fresh grated coconut/frozen coconut
3 tbsp ghee
1 1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
raisins for garnish
1.If you have fresh coconut, grate it or you can buy frozen coconut also.
2.Add rava and 2 tbsp ghee into pan and put it on medium heat.Roast rava till nice aroma comes for 5-7 minutes.Do not roast to change the color.It should stay in white color.
3.Now in same pan, take coconut and add 1 tbsp ghee and roast it for 3-4 minutes.Make sure, it should not burn.
4.Mix rava and cconut together.Take sugar and water in pan and make sugar syrup till single thread consistency.
5.After syrup is done, turn heat off.Add rava and coconut mixture to this suar syrup.Add cardamom powder and allow it to rest for 30 minutes.
6.All syrup gets soakced in rava, that time you can start rolling ladoos with your hand.Apply little ghee on hand, so mixture does not stick to your hand.
7.Put raisin on ladoo while making ladoo, it will give nice look to your ‘Rava coconut ladoos’.
Store these ladoos for a week, as it has fresh coconut.But, you know in my home 7 days is long time, it will finish in 3-4 days.
